The Grimstones come to the Younger Sun

How lucky are we at the Younger Sun Book Shop?

Not only do we have a new amazing pop up park popping up on our doorstep but the Amazing and Talented Asphyxia paid us a visit this morning and has installed a window display of her characters from The Grimstones.

Asphyxia is a puppeteer who has just released her first book, The Grimstones, Hatched.... 
A chapter book about The Grimstone family. Have you met them?
 There is Martha Grimstone who wants to grow up to become Lady Martha the Magnificent and she lives with her Mother, a seamstress, and her Grandpa Grimstone, an alchemist, in a grand old house. 

This Gothic fairy tale is positively spooky and fantastically beautiful. Stay tuned for photos of the window! You find out more about The Grimstones here: www.thegrimstones.com
PLUS we have some extra special signed copies of The Grimstones in the shop right now! Scuttle in and take a peep at the window too! It is totally amazing!

  1. This is the most wonderfully delightful book, from an inspiring new Australian writer. What a point of difference - a fairytale with no villain! The Grimstones - Hatched will appeal to all ages!


and so what do YOU think?
